Persistent and Recurrent Hyperparathyroidism

The Mount Sinai Endocrine Surgery Parathyroid Program has experts who can treat persistent and recurrent hyperparathyroidism.

  • Persistent hyperparathyroidism means that the initial parathyroid operation was not successful in curing the patient.

  • In recurrent hyperparathyroidism, the overactive parathyroid condition returns greater than six months from the index parathyroid procedure.

In both conditions, a second operation is necessary to cure the persistent condition of hyperparathyroidism.

Comprehensive Diagnosis and Treatment

Additional testing is recommended to identify the exact location of the diseased parathyroid. From there, our experts will provide you with a comprehensive plan outlining treatment options and what to expect during your recovery.

Our expert surgeons are guided by state-of-the art tools in the operating room including intra-operative parathyroid hormone monitoring and laryngeal nerve monitoring. Most of our patients with persistent or recurrent hyperparathyroidism are discharged the same as surgery.
